Official Sponsor Cowes Yacht Haven hosts the world-famous premier sailing regatta
Since 1826 Cowes Week has played a key part in the British sporting summer calendar and is one of the UK’s longest running and most successful sporting events.
Cowes Week always offers a great mix of competitive sailing and social activities. The competitors range from Olympic and world class professionals to weekend sailors. Visitors come to watch the racing, enjoy the parties, and experience the unique atmosphere. It is genuinely a one-of-a-kind event.
With over 1000 yachts participating, from high-tech racing boats to classic day boats, and with around 8,000 people involved, it’s no wonder that Cowes Week is the longest running regular regatta in the world.
As well as sailing activities, Cowes Week offers a large number of onshore activities. Around 50,000 visitors in addition to all the competitors are attracted to Cowes each year by the festival atmosphere of the event.

Following success and positive feedback Cowes Yacht Haven (the spiritual home of Cowes Week) is keeping its ‘back to roots’ ethos and will be presenting a boat-crew and family-friendly offering for this year’s Cowes Week.
The main hospitality area, which remains open to all, will be in the north side of the site, providing easy and quick access to and from Red Funnel’s Red Jet terminal and Cowes High Street. Once inside guests will find the MUSTO Sailors’ Bar overlooking the marina and the Solent beyond. A small stage will host our evening musical entertainment. Click here for the full list.
The North-wall, that wraps around the marina gives the perfect vantage point to watch the boats coming and going and preparing for their racing. The main hospitality area will be open from 1000hrs to 2300hrs and entry remains free of charge every day for all.
Food will be available each day. Come and enjoy a variety of foods from Island traders.
